Adam Sandler is making decent movies for a change
Last year Adam Sandler was getting some early Oscar buzz after The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) debuted to a four-minute standing ovation at Cannes Film Festival.
While he didn't end up getting that nomination for the Noah Baumbach film, The Meyerowitz Stories turned out to be one of the best movies in Adam Sandler's lengthy catalogue. But it turns out he's not done with semi-serious dramedies.
Netflix has dropped the first trailer for The Week Of, a family comedy about an upcoming wedding in which Sandler and Chris Rock play the fathers of the bride and groom, respectively. It's not your typical goofball Adam Sandler comedy. While still a funny-looking movie, this has some heart, more along the lines of last year's Meyerowitz Stories or Judd Apatow's Funny People.
Take a look at the teaser below for the film, which debuts on Netflix on April 27.
